White House Denies CIA Teleported Obama to Mars | Danger Room |

Just when I thought things were getting quiet around here. . .

Ridiculous, but of course, but so wacky I just have to post it:
White House Denies CIA Teleported Obama to Mars | Danger Room |

Forget Kenya. Never mind the secret madrassas. The sinister, shocking truth about Barack Obama’s past lies not in east Africa, but in outer space. As a young man in the early 1980s, Obama was part of a secret CIA project to explore Mars. The future president teleported there, along with the future head of Darpa.

That’s the assertion, at least, of a pair of self-proclaimed time-traveling, universe-exploring government agents. Andrew D. Basiago and William Stillings insist that they once served as “chrononauts” at Darpa’s behest, traversing the boundaries of time and space. They swear: A youthful Barack Obama was one of them.

However, the article can't resist lumping all of conspiracy minded conspiracies with tin foil hat wearing kooks:
Perhaps this all sounds fantastical, absurd, and more than a little nuts. We couldn’t agree more. That’s one of the reasons we love conspiracy theories — the more awesomely insane, the better. Each week during 2012, when the Mayans tell us to expect the apocalypse, Danger Room will peel back a new layer of crazy to expose those oh-so-cleverly hidden machinations powering this doomed plane of existence. Welcome — back — to Tinfoil Tuesday.

I'd say "sigh" right here but that's become as irritating and old as air quotes, the use of "really?!", "literally" and other popular culture - isms. For good measure a Marvin the Martian cartoon snippet is thrown in, which I don't mind because I love Marvin the Martian.
